The CR-4M is a 4-string upright double bass that won't take up the whole place, but will fill the room with...
As you might expect for a revolutionary instrument maker, NS Design is the brainchild of one passionate craftsman. Ned Steinberger learned to love woodworking when he was young, and he carried that talent into his career. Cutting his teeth on the music industry by making bass guitar bodies, he quickly developed an appreciation for bowed instruments. From there, it was a simple matter of combining his electric bass expertise with the full-sized orchestral version of the instrument, and NS Design electric upright basses were born.
Every bass that you'll find in this section is a premium instrument with European craftsmanship and immaculate standards for build quality and sound. For most of us, the NXT series is probably the way to go. Instruments like the NS Design NXT 4-String Electric Double Bass or NS NXT 4 Omni Bass are perfect for players at any skill level, with the option of using electric or traditional acoustic strings for a customizable playing experience. They also come in 5-string variants (the NXT 5-String and NS NXT5 Omni), so if you're looking for extended range there's a right choice for you.
For the most discriminating professional players, an even higher-end model may be in order. If that sounds like you, check out the private reserve instruments in this section. Take the NS Design CR Series CR-4M Electric Upright Double Bass, for instance: its polar bridge pickup system detects not only string vibration, but also the direction, allowing it to render impeccably nuanced sound. That's in addition to the clean aesthetics and exceptional playability that make the CR-4M a standout in every way.
With NS Designs, the name says a lot about what you can expect. Design is the focus of all the instruments in this section, and that means in all aspects: they're designed to look great, designed to sound amazing and designed to be so accessible that any bassist, from the newest beginner to the most veteran orchestral lead, can play to his or her fullest. To put it simply, NS Design electric upright basses deliver everything you should expect from this modern take on a traditional instrument.
